What Mumsnetters say about presents for teens

  • "Although mine are older, I always buy them something childish - last year we bought my son a silly Lego game, and a couple of packs of Lego mini figures. Lego was such a big part of his life growing up, and he loves it!" 
  • "How about things that they can share with friends? So a subscription to a local cinema, theatre tickets etc?" 
  • "Mine loved coffee shop vouchers last year. They walk past one on their walk home from school and liked being able to stop for a hot choc or get a takeaway drink. A real treat on a cold or wet day."
  • "I am thinking of doing them a bundle of vouchers - some cinema, some ten-pin bowling (going to look at whether any cheapish food places like Pizza Express/Nandos do vouchers) to aid their social life but save them money."
